Create The Career Of Your Dreams With Beautytap’s Beauty Expert Program
This opportunity is a game-changer.
If you’re looking for a deeply fulfilling way to expand your beauty knowledge, connect with world-renown luminaries, experience innovative new skin and hair care products, grow your professional networks, and create exciting new opportunities for yourself, Beautytap’s Beauty Expert Program is a one-of-a-kind game-changer. As a professional beauty writer and a member of the Beautytap community since 2018, I’ve personally witnessed the birth and experienced the growth of their highly diverse Beauty Expert Program (BEP) and continue to benefit from the unprecedented value this opportunity offers to industry professionals.
A Community Built for Beauty Professionals
In a world filled with self-proclaimed experts, it’s difficult to know if someone is credible at first glance. The BEP instantly clears that hurdle by carefully vetting every potential Beauty Expert (BE) just like any employer would (or should) do. Potential BEs must apply for consideration, provide their certification or licensing documentation, and have real-life experience demonstrating an authentic commitment to the beauty industry. Even as an editorial writer for Beautytap for several years prior to joining the BEP, I, too, went through the multi-step interview process (three interviews, to be exact) before being offered a BE position. For me, knowing that Beautytap screens applicants rigorously conveys credibility – something that’s crucial to reflect on my professional résumé.
Get Industry Insight from World-Renown Beauty Insiders
Imagine being a fly on the wall while some of the biggest names in beauty chat about cutting-edge technology, trends or how they created their own successful brand. Now imagine being able to engage with those same people without having to first get through their PR teams or numerous other guardians. That’s what Beautytap Talks offers – these professional events bring industry experts together for a 60-minute discussion that you’d rarely ever hear without being invited by an insider or someone in the know.
From intimate conversations about hair and scalp care with Philip B. and behind-the-scenes stories with celebrity makeup artist, Jamie Greenberg to how to grow your beauty career with author and coach, Crystal Wright and innovative new anti-aging treatments with cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Kay Durairaj, Beauty Experts have endless opportunities to learn, excel, and put their knowledge to work for them thanks to the guidance these industry luminaries offer. And asking questions is not only appropriate but encouraged, as you’ll see by my omnipresent “raised hand” in Zoom.
Continue Your Education at No Charge
Before I ever dreamed of starting my own company, I spent a substantial amount of money on my education. Masterclasses were, by far, my favorite because they allowed me to study with well-known, respected professionals in a small, interactive environment. Beautytap’s Beauty Expert Program offers these deeply insightful classes to its BE’s on a regular basis, so they can learn directly from celebrated brand founders about the stories behind their brands as well as technologically advanced ingredients, formulation, and digital marketing strategies.
But unlike many lecture-based learning environments, Beauty Experts have the unprecedented opportunity to ask questions and interact directly with the most revered names in the industry including: chemists, doctors, CEOs, brand founders, and marketing representatives in order to gain knowledge that they can share with their clients or use personally to help propel their own careers. And unlike most in-person events, Beautytap’s masterclasses are recorded for later reference, and BEs have access to every event free of charge. On the other hand, try finding a free master class anywhere. I did! Outside of the typical 7-day trial, free masterclasses simply don’t exist.
BE’s not only gain superior knowledge through these masterclasses, Beautytap’s esteemed editorial team has also written over 2,000 deep-dive articles on hundreds of beauty and wellness topics featuring sought-after advice from revered, board-certified doctors and experts.
Advance Your Knowledge Base By Reviewing Products
Professionals who intend to make a career in beauty know that learning about new products on their own dime can be a substantial expense. As a skincare writer, I’m constantly purchasing new products to stay abreast of ingredients and trends, but my budget isn’t unlimited. Beauty Experts who participate in Beautytap’s Review Program come from diverse backgrounds, nationalities and age ranges and are presented with both the master classes and editorials along with the opportunity to experience cutting-edge products firsthand in order to write thoughtful, thorough, honest reviews to share with the community. Brands provide a limited number of their coveted products to BEs who meet the Review Program participation requirements, which includes having at least two years of professional experience.
Turn a Master Class or Product Review Into A Networking Opportunity
Whether you’re looking to grow your own personal brand – and, oh, by the way, you are a brand whether you know it or not – or are hoping to connect with a company whose values, ideologies, and mission align with your own, being a member of the Beauty Expert Program is invaluable. Participating in review rounds and evaluating products gives you direct experience with brands and personal connections with other industry experts that you may hope to work with in the future.
Sharing your appreciation for a product can be difficult to do in a cover letter or résumé, but the words and images you create for a product review may resonate for brands so thoroughly that they contact you for future projects and/or potential collaboration. The Beauty Expert Program is, in fact, a significant networking tool that Beauty Experts benefit from on an ongoing basis.
To my knowledge, the Beautytap Beauty Expert Program is in a league of its own and no other industry platform provides its members with so many remarkable opportunities to create a thriving career in the beauty industry. So … what are you waiting for?
